Lighting your Reading Nook

 

Do you want to give your home a new reading area so that you can kick back and relax? When you moved in, maybe you just assumed that you would read in the main living room, but now your children are taking over to watch TV or play video games. Fortunately, it is not hard to transform a back room into a reading area.

You need to start by getting all of the right furniture. If you do not have much space, a couch may be a better choice than a pair of chairs since it offers more seating in about the same physical space. If you are just going to be using it by yourself, though, get a soft, comfortable armchair. Put an ottoman in front of it so that you can put your feet up. On one side, put a basket full of blankets for the cold winter months, and then put a bookshelf on the other side, within arm’s reach, for all of your favorite titles.

The last step is the lighting. You do not want to use overhead lights because they tend to be too bright. This does not make the room feel cozy and inviting, and can even shine painfully in your eyes if you are slouching down and holding the book up high. Instead, you should turn to small bedside lamps or compact fluorescent lamps from GenesisLamp.com. Try to find options with three-way bulbs so that you can choose exactly how much light you need.
